How long after an interview before I hear back regarding a decision?
This is a great question to ask at your interview to explore the timeline for the position you’ve applied for. Every role is unique and has an individual timeline impacting the decision-making process. Based on the position and the candidate pool, it could take days or weeks to select a candidate. We strive to select the right candidate for the role, rather than the quick-candidate. We make every effort to contact candidates if you are NOT selected for the position, and we welcome candidates to re-apply for other opportunities you are well-qualified for.
If I am offered a position, how long before I can start?
NVIH’s onboarding process takes roughly 2-3 weeks to complete, and our New Hire Orientation is generally held twice monthly. The pre-employment screening process includes a background check, and additional health screening requirements completed before your first day of orientation. In unusual circumstances, there may be unanticipated delays during the pre-screening process which require adjustment of your start date. Additional information will be discussed at the time a formal offer is made.
Can you tell me more about Native Preference?
Preference in filling vacancies will be given to qualified Native American applicants. In other than the above, Northern Valley Indian Health, Inc., is an Equal Opportunity Employer. If you belong to a federally recognized Native American tribe, we ask that you upload a tribal ID card or letter of tribal affiliation when you submit your resume and application. This helps us prioritize candidates and decreases delays in the screening process.
Do I need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to work for your organization?
We do require all employees to have current flu and COVID vaccinations (including any boosters for which you are eligible).
Is there an option to work from home?
Northern Valley Indian Health does not offer any work from home positions at this time. All of our positions work closely with the public and require in-person attendance.
